By Jennie Dahlberg 

T T is evening. Dusk is quickly melting into night. A pedestrian going east on Sixty- 
■^ second street for the first time, is attracted by an unusual building in the foreground — 
a large building whose four large, castle-like towers point skyward. The cold, gray 
stone seems in perfect harmony with the cold, gray sky. 

What is this strange building? A prison, reminiscent of the days of knights and 
dungeons? The observer's imagination goes back a semi-millenium and he sees stal- 
wart horsemen in armour of steel, riding gallantly forth on their spirited steeds. He sees 
the beautiful golden-haired princess imprisoned in one of the cold towers. Curiosity 
draws him closer and he approaches the immense building which covers nearly an entire 
square block. Presently the lights go on, until the thousand windows gleam like an 
enormous candelabra. 

Fancy is broken by the sound of wheels and the grinding of brakes as a dozen 
automobiles park before the building. More and more arrive until the street before 
the spectator is filled with cars, as well as the side streets leading away from it. There 
are machines of every size and shape, color and kind; some large and comfortable, some 
less pretentious and others even old and dilapidated, but getting there just the same. 
"To get there" seems to be the passion, the urge of this multitude that is now pouring up 
the stairway, like the urge to victory of the ancient warriors. 

In a moment all is silent again, save for the echoes of the recent hilarity in the 
hallways. An almost breathless eagerness to learn reigns supreme. Interested instructors 
are revealing the intricacies of the various arts and sciences, trades and crafts. Eager 
students enter into discussions, absorbing all that is said. 

An hour passes, a bell rings, the halls are again filled with talking and laughing — 
then silence. This is repeated for three hours and then the evening classes are over, the 
cavalcade of students is homeward bound. Outside there are sounds of gear shifting, 
cranking, humming and purring. Soon all is quiet save for an occasional straggler leav- 
ing the building. 

The lights are extinguished. The cold, gray stone parapets of the castle towers 
still point silently heavenward, but this time they are powerfully impressive to the pedes- 
trian, for they stand like sentinels guarding the institution that moulds youthful mind and

'"pHE school has been an opportunity. We are proud of the 
things you have done. You were earnest and true. You 
have been eager for growth and for fame. You have weighed 
and measured. You have selected and treasured. You have 
stored the soundest of wealth. 

The future gives promise of worth. Men and women who 
seek for the best! People who avoid not the test! Endurance 
whose name will be blest! A Nation upheld, not oppressed! 

A chapter of the Englewood Evening High School is 
ending. A page has been written and sealed. Within it your 
hearts lie revealed. Ambitious! Courageous! Searching! 
Unsatisfied ! Strong hearts girt for the strife. 

David M. Davidson. 






The Office Force 

T IKE the engine that sets the locomotive into motion and pulls a vast train, so the office 
'"' of Englewood Evening School is the central force which carries forward the train 
of progress with its four thousand students over the hills of knowledge. 

Mr. David M. Davidson, "chief engineer," though with us but two short years, 
has helped to build up one of the two standard evening high schools in Chicago. He is 
constantly working for the improvement of the evening school, and has the best interests 
of its students always at heart. 

Mr. Frederic C. Lucas and Mr. George White, assistants to the principal, are Mr. 
Davidson's right hand men. Mr. Lucas has charge of the school payroll and handles the 
tuition fees. He is the buyer of school supplies and equipment, and is also overseer of 
the Booster Association. Mr. White handles other finances of the school, such as the 
sale of tickets for school entertainments, opera tickets, the financing of the Evening Star, 
the Booster dances, and any other school enterprise in which money is involved. He is 
also supervisor of the Foreign Department in the Lewis-Champlin Building. 

Miss Mildred Wheelock is the very important person whom one interviews in re- 
gard to credits, for she is the registrar. She supervises the huge files in which each stu- 
dent's credits are recorded, whether earned at Englewood or other schools, and she is an 
ever ready adviser for the students who are in doubt about their course of study. 

Miss Helen Rowe assists Miss Wheelock with the students' records and also keeps 
the attendance of the teachers, while Miss Margaret Hurney is Mr. Davidson's secretary 
and makes all statistical reports which go to the Board of Education.

Foreign Department Graduates 

npHE Foreign Department graduation exercises which will be held June 9, in the 
^ Lewis-ChampHn building, will mark a great step forward for the eighty-odd students 
who have completed the elementary grades and will receive diplomas. All nationalities 
are represented by men and women who have come to learn the language, customs and 
ideals of America with the sole purpose of graduating and becoming naturalized Ameri- 
can citizens, and then furthering their education in the Englewood Evening High School. 

The elementary work included : English, the most important and necessary sub- 
ject; civics, geography, mathematics, spelling, history, and music. The class was grouped 
into two rooms under the instruction of Miss E. M. Berg of room 307, and Miss A. A. 
Boyle of room 303. The pupils attended classes regularly and in some cases they did 
not miss a single evening. 

Much credit must be given to Mr. George White, who undertook the responsibility 
of head of the department, a position which was vacated by Mr. C. S. Warner last 
November. He has endeavored to bring about a closer relationship of the students of 
the Foreign Department and the Englewood Evening Boosters.

Gigantic New Office Building To 
House Company 

At the meeting of the board 
of directors of the Nelsen 
Needle and Thread Corporation, 
Mr. Harold F. Nelsen, chairman 
of the board of directors, an- 
nounced that he has just com- 
pleted negotiations with two of 
the country's leading concerns, 
the MacNair Needle Company 
of Oshkosh, Wisconsm, and The 
Earley Thread Company of 
Wheeling, W. Va., whereby 
both firms will be taken over by 
the Nelsen organization. 

Assets Beyond Equal 

The merging of these three 
world-renowned firms will make 
a company that has no peer m 
size and available assets. Al- 
though no definite figure has as 
yet been mentioned for publica- 
tion, it is certain that never be- 
fore has a' transaction of such 
proportions been closed. 

Erect New Building 

The board also passed on 
plans drawn up by the noted 
architect, Robert A. Kaichbren- 
ner, for a fifty-one story struc- 
ture to be erected at Michigan 
avenue and East South Watet 
street. This building will sur- 
pass in height and beauty all of 
Chicago's numerous skyscrapers. 
The offices of the new corpora- 
tion, which will be known as 
the Nelsen Amalgamated Needle

Bowling Champion Beaten; 

Kosovske Plays Brilliantly 

By dint of his extraordinary 
skill in the art of handling the 
bowling ball, Abe Kosovske, de- 
throned Edward Daly, national 
champion, at Peterson's alleys 
last night. 

Known for his prowess in this 
field while a student at the Eng- 
lewood Evening School about 
ten years ago, he did not disap. 
point his ardent followers, who 
predict a brilliant future ifor 


Chicago Professor 
To Give Travel Talk 
At Medinah Temple 

Associated Press, Chicago, 
June I, 1937.— Professor Paul 
E. Anderson, noted lecturer of 
University of Chicago, will give 
an illustrated lecture on the 
Orient at the Medinah Temple 
this evening at eight o'clock. 
Colored slides will be shown 
giving views of Turkey, 
potamia, India, China, 
and Thibet. 

Professor .Anderson was a 
graduate of the class of '27 at 
lEnglewood Evening School. 
During the day he was an of- 
fice boy at the Federal Life In- 
surance Company, while his eve- 
nings were spent in "pursuit of 
knowledge." Later he worked 
as a secretary for the Oriental 
Rug Company, and attended 
Evening College. 

On his graduation he was giv- 
en a position at the Lombard 
College and later transferred to 
the University of Chicago. Now 
he conducts tours through the 
Orient for the Floating Univer- 



With an impressive speech 
from Mr. Ken Hammond, the 
national convention of steel pro- 
ducer? witnessed the opening ses- 
sion of its meeting at the Con- 
gress Hotel, Chicago, Thursday, 
June 1st, 1937. Mr. Hammond 
was selected for this honor be- 
cause of his tremendous popu- 
larity in steel circles throughout 
the country. 

A former student of the Eng- 
lewood Evening School, where 
he distinguished himself some ten 
years ago as a student of great 
promise, Mr. Hammond was at 
that time a custodian of supplies 
for the United States Steel com- 

His meteoric rise to fame is 
attributed to his avidity for work 
and more of it, every minute of 
the day. 



Congressman Higginbotham, 
Father of Measure 

At the opening of Congress 
yesterday, many important bills 
were proposed, one of the most 
momentous being the introduction 
of a bill whereby all aged and 
decrepit banjo players would re- 
ceive a life pension to be paid 
out of the treasury funds of the 
United States. 

Hon. William Higginbotham, 
congressman from Illinois, is the 
father of the bill, and it is be- 
lieved that he will receive hearty 
support in all quarters. 

Higginbotham Speaks 

"It is only just," says Mr. 
Higginbotham, "that we should 
show these men some mark of 
respect in thanks for the won- 
derful work done by them in 
years gone by. Music, whether 
old-time jazz, such as Whiteman, 
Waring and Ash played, or the 
sweet, soothing melodies of the 
present age, is a vital part of a 
man's life! 

Mr. Walter Rink, director of 
the Chicago Symphony Orches- 
tra, when interviewed said that 
to his mind, Mr. Higginbotham's 
bill was one of the greatest bene- 
fits to the world of music since 
the days of Pan. 

Chicagoans Present 

Among the noted personages 
m the audience at the opening 
of Congress, were many faces 
from Chicago, including Miss 
Mary McElliott, the well-known 
novelist; Miss Doris Barber, 
leader of the younger social set; 
Professor David M. Davidson, 
president of the Englewood City 
College; Dr. Charles J. Espen- 
shade, assistant to the Secretary 
of Public Instruction, and in im- 
mediate charge of the propaga- 
tion of the study of music in all 
schools in the United Stales, 

A new book, "My Adventures 
in the Wilds of America," by 
Professor E. S. Galusha, of 
Englewood Evening College, has 
just come off the press. This is 
a series of tales used by Prof. 
Galusha to enliven the study of 
accounting in his evening classes. 




June 1, 1937 


Large Fortune Involved In 
Strange Case 

Anthony Pilipovich is quickly 
learning that posing as a medium 
is rather risky business. On 
September 30, 1936, John Wais- 
man went to Pilipovich to obtain 
an interview with the shade of a 
departed uncle regardmg the dis- 
appearance of considerable gold 
of which the said uncle was 

Mr. Waisman apparently had 
reason to doubt the skill of 
Pilipovich in the art of med- 
iumism, for he had him arrested 
on the charge of being a fraud. 
Peterson Tries Case 

The case came up for trial 
today in Judge Ole Peterson's 
court, nicknamed by his friends, 
"The Sleepy Judge." As Wais- 
man's English was somewhat un- 
developed, Theophile Imhof, 
professor of modern languages 
at the University of Chicago, 
was called in to act as an inter- 

Simons Prosecutes 

Mr. Maurice Simons, the 
prominent young lawyer, acted 
as prosecuting attorney, while 
Mr. Mark Perlmutter of Stock- 
holm, Minnesota, is attorney for 
the defense. 

Miss Ruth Goff, court re- 
porter, was called upon to re- 
read certain sections of the re- 
port which seemed to be rather 
hazy in the mind of the plaintiff. 

The defendant will go on the 
stand tomorrow, and the case 
promises to be an interesting one, 
though it may tend to discourage 
some promising explorers into 
the unseen. 


Associated Press, Pasadena, 
June 5. — Irwin R. Falk, wealthy 
Chicagoan, today won the annual 
amateur tennis tourament from 
Isadore Roy Davis, former title 
holder. The tournament was 
witnessed by approximately two 
thousand tourists. This event 
was the climax of the yearly 
Festival of Roses. 

Petersen Wins Prize 
At Indiana Speed way; 
Defeats Immensee 

Charles LeRoy Petersen won 
the $50,000 Grand Prize at thf 
Indianapolis Speedway today 
by holding his Straight-Eight 
Special at a terrific speed, 
smashing the record of 109.21 
miles per hour, held by the 
German driver, Herr Ludwig 
von Immensee. 

Much of the credit for the 
speed developed by this machine 
is due to Adolph Grib, head 
mechanic at the General Motors 
plant, who superintended the 
construction of the racer. 

Mr. Petersen and Mr. Grib 
were both graduated from the 
Englewood Evening High School 
in the spring of 1927. After 
leaving school, they were drawn 
into the automobile industry, 
Petersen as a car tester for the 
Cadillac and Grib as a me- 
chanic's assistant. 


Joseph Coons, celebrated play- 
wright, arrived on the Twen- 
tieth Century from New York 
this morning, to attend the Chi- 
cago premiere of his play, "Ye 
Small Towne Gossipe, " at the 
Goodman Theatre. 

The play has created quite a 
furore in the theatrical world, 
having been acclaimed one of 
the finest dramas ever presented 
on the American stage. 

Leonard Ryan, well-known 
character actor, plays the lead- 
ing role, with Miss Claire Rose, 
"America's Darling, " playing op- 
posite him. They are supported 
by a fine cast. 

Mr. Coons has received many 
offers for the screen rights of his 
play, and it is rumored his re- 
ceipts so far have run up to 
three million dollars. 

Olympic Records Shattered; 

Chicagoans Capture Honots 

Two world's records were es- 
tablished in the Olympian games 
held at Amsterdam, by the Am- 
erican entrants, Alexander J. 
Skrzypek and Flavious Spencer, 
both graduates of the class of 
'27 of the Englewood Evening 
High School. 


Explorers Conquer Lofty Mt. 
Everest Peak 

News reached Chicago today 
that Miss Agnes Dol, famous 
woman explorer, and her party, 
who left here June I, 1932, on 
an Asiatic expedition, climbed 
over 29,000 feel up the snow- 
laden Mt. Everest, thus setting a 
world record, since she is the first 
climber who has not turned back 
before reaching the top of the 
world's highest peak. 
Risks Life 

With Miss Dol was Miss 
Louise Schoenemann, prominent 
Chicago novelist and poet, and 
Mr. Lyman Harrington of the 
Griffith Motion Picture Com- 
pany, whose undaunted courage 
enabled him not only to climb the 
sinister, snow-banked monster 
peak, but loaded down with sev- 
eral cameras he secured marve- 
lous views at the risk of his life 
to be used in forthcoming mo- 
tion pictures. 

The third member of the party 
was Mr. Zephire J. Marquie, 
the Chicago millionaire, made 
famous by his world-wonder in- 
ventions of 1927 — which caused 
the miraculous disappearance o: 
the Mississippi flood waters that 
endangered thousands of lives 
and caused a loss of billions of 
dollars worth of property. 
Formerly at E. E. S. 

The members of this party 
are all Englewood Evening 
School alumni, and Miss Dol 
has promised Miss Joanna Zan- 
der, present dean of the evening 
school, on her return, to give a 
lecture to the students on her 

Miss Schoenemann's latest 
novel, "Agnes the Conqueror," 
will be on sale May 1 and Mr. 
Marquie has already notified the 
Field Museum that his wonder- 
ful collection of rare plants and 
mounted wild animals of hitherto 
unheard-of species will be on 
exposition at the Museum by the

Lon Burrilt Geddes, who 
started life as a dry goods clerk 
in a downtown department store, 
has just been commissioned to 
make extensive repairs on the 
White House. 

Mr. Geddes spent his spare 
lime studying to be an architect 
in the Englewood Evening 
School and Junior College. He 
rose rapidly through the ranks 
to become floorwalker, then sec- 
retary of the firm, and when he 
had completed his study of arch- 
itecture, he went into business 
for himself. 

"Mr. Mencken," began Ed- 
win Enright, "is there a possible 
position for a reporter on your 
staff?" Such was the beginning 
of a boy of ambition. Now he 
slaps the dignified editor on the 
back and says, "Well, old boy," 
and "How's everything?" 

From secretary of a hard- 
ware wholesale house to assist- 
ant editor and co-author of 
"What's That You Say?" a 
book much discussed in literary 
circles. Englewood was his 
"Alma Mater."

South Shore mansion are always 
notable social events. He is like- 
wise known as an amateur sing-

a number of performances given 
by the South Shore Junior 
League. The cognoscenti are 
still talking about his exceptional 
rendition of the leading male 
role in Gilbert and Sullivan's 
"Pinafore," last December.

Student, Wins Honors 

The Nobel prize has once 
again been presented to a Chi- 
cagoan, in the person of Mr. 
John Radosevic, widely known 
professor of ancient history in 
Crane Senior College of Chica- 
go. The Nobel prize, founded 
by Alfred Bernard Nobel, » 
Swedish chemist, is awarded an- 
nually to benefactors of human 
ity in the fields of literature, and 
the furtherance of peace. 

Mr. Radosevic s earnest en- 
deavors in the prevention of the 
recently heralded war, earned 
for him this coveted prize. 

Former classmates of Mr. 
Radosevic of the famous old 
Englewood Evening School will 
recall the summer evening when 
John starred in the American 
Legion American history test 
given in the Journalism class of 
which he was a member, mak- 
ing the excellent score of 40 on

Screen tests have been made and 
have proved most satisfactory. 

This news leaked out as Mr. 
Lasky, president of the Famous 
Players organization, boarded a 
train for New York, where he 
will arrange details for the 
world's premiere of Ben's Her, 
starring Aileen Moore and Wal-

Adventure lurks in the most 
unexpected places, as Mr. Aug- 
ust R. Pieper, wealthy tea im- 
porter of 445 Englewood ave- 
nue, discovered yesterday eve- 
ning when he was leisurely walk- 
ing along Normal Boulevard at 
about 1 I :30. As he passed the 
palatial residence of Frank E. 
McCollom, 6133 Normal Boule- 
vard, his attention was attracted 
to the figure of a man making 
his escape through a French win- 
dow near the street. 

Phones Sgt. Murphy 

Mr. Pieper looked, walked on, 
and said nothing until he reach- 
ed Walgreen's drug store at the 
corner of 63rd and Normal 
Boulevard. There he called the 
Englewood police station and 
told what he had seen. Desk 
Sergeant Eugene Murphy imme- 
diately sent out the flivver 

Shots Fired 

Mr. Pieper's curiosity being 
thoroughly aroused, he walked 
back along Normal Boulevard to 
see what was happening and ar- 
rived just in time to see the po- 
lice squad dart into the alley at 
the rear of the McCollom home. 
While he stood there trying to 
decide whether he should follow 
them or return home, he heard 
two shots fired a short distance 
away. Almost at the same in- 
stant a man came running out 
of the alley and fell almost at 
his feet. 

Sneak Thief Caught 

The squad arrived immedi- 
ately in hot pursuit to claim the 
prisoner who turned out to be 
"Sneaking Sam," a well-known 
thief and safe-cracker. Need- 
less to say, the police are grate- 
ful to Mr. Pieper, who enjoyed 
the little adventure immensely, 
according to his own account. 

Her brilliant playing in the 
championship tourament played 
off recently at the I. W. A. C, 
was the main factor in securing 
this honor for her.

"The Paths To Success" 

By Harold Garnet Black 

"A man's life 'consisteth not in the abundance of the tilings which 
he possesseth' ; it is something more than eating and drinking and making 

"Education develops personality. Literary, social, and scientific 
studies are the soil in which that fine flower grows and matures. They are 
the external forces which hasten its development and give it depth and 
richness, power and beauty, for through them one learns something of the 
processes and laws of nature, which after all are the processes and laws 
of God." 

"Education, as the president of a great western university declared 
not long ago, should produce men and women who will be a credit to 
society, not merely because they are useful from the so-called practical 
standpoint, but because they daily exhibit true culture, which includes 
character as well as knowledge." 

"Education is dynamic; it is full of pent-up energy capable of 
being used at a moment's notice. ... It gives life and direction to one's 
purposes. It ennobles his ideals, increases his happiness, and multiplies 
his opportunities for service. Furthermore, it widens his intellectual hori- 
zon, enlarges his range of interests, enriches his mind, deepens his sym- 
pathies, and makes him a citizen of the world."

The Foreign Department 

/'^N September 10, 1926, Englewood Evening School opened wide its doors to the 
^~^ men and women wishing to enter. The Lewis-Champlin building followed suit, 
offering training in English and civics to the hordes of foreign-born people who wished to 
become American citizens. 

Mr. Charles S. Warner, who was again made dean of the Americanization classes, 
reported an enrollment of over 700 students at the initial opening, and since that time this 
has been greatly increased. 

The Lewis-Champlin school offers opportunities for those who know no English at 
all; for those who have a fair knowledge of it; and for those who wish to prepare for 
high school. 

Work ran along smoothly until October 14, when Mr. David M. Davidson an- 
nounced the resignation of Mr. Charles S. Warner. Mr. Warner came to Englewood 
High School five years ago as assistant to the dean of the Americanization classes when 
Mr. Tower was principal. Mr. Tower sensed his interest and ability and soon gave 
him full charge of the work. 

It seemed at first that a fit successor to Mr. Warner would be hard to find, but in 
Mr. George M. White, it was soon evident that another good man was coming into 

Thanksgiving week a collection was taken in this school for a fund for the poor 
children. With happy smiles on their faces the students put their hands in their pockets, 
and with such effectiveness that $148.44 was collected.

The Lewis-Champlinites, their hearts warmed with the joy of giving, were in such 
fine spirits, that they no longer delayed their much-discussed dance. On Thursday, No- 
vember 8, a goodly crowd was there in the gymnasium. This dance, which was ar- 
ranged to bring about co-operation and friendliness in the Americanization classes, was 
labeled a huge success by Mr. White and the pupils. 

The big closing dance before the Christmas vacation, was received with much en- 
thusiasm by the pupils. 

With the re-opening of the school, on January 3, the students joyfully trooped 
back to school, renewing old friendships and making new ones. Four hundred and fifty 
people enrolled for the new semester. 

The school soon resumed its normal appearance and every one worked harder than 
before to excel in their Americanization work in order to be perfectly instructed when tak- 
ing out their citizenship papers. 

Washington's birthday was celebrated by showing slides depictmg the life and 
career of George Washington from his English ancestors, until his death at Mount 

There was a great bustle in the Lewis-Champlin building during the middle of the 
month of March, when the non-standard evening schools were closed and many of their 
pupils, desiring further education, gratefully accepted Mr. Davidson's invitation to con- 
tinue their studies at Englewood Evening School. Students from Fenger, Tilden, Stew- 
art, Lindblom, and other schools trooped to the Lewis-Champlin Building and were soon 
assigned to classes by Mr. Davidson and Mr. White. 

Dances and parties have enlivened the everyday round of study, and these enthus- 
iastic Englewood Boosters finished their year in the same spirit in which it was begun, by 
setting a fine standard of loyalty and co-operation with every school enterprise.

TN the midst of a garden, among roses, 
■*- Which was ever my favorite spot — 
In the shadow of Hlies and beauties. 
Grew the lovely Forget-Me-Not. 

"Oh! Why is your name so enchanting, 
And your petals so heavenly blue?" 

"Because I wish to be ever remembered; 
My color means 'faithful and true.' " 

"But why are you a floweret so little, 
And your branches so tiny and weak?" 

"'Tis because I prefer to be humble. 
For God loves the lowly, the meek." 

Yes, how truly do I love His creation 

And this beautiful spot where you grow! 

Your symbols have taught me a lesson 
To remember wherever I go. 

You, too, will be thought of forever; 

You have shared of those gifts from above; 
Your shade is an emblem of honor ; 

Your name is a symbol of love.

'"pODAY I pause to give a thought 
■^ To life: my own that's past; 
To ponder o'er my future days 
On this grim earth so vast. 

My memory recalls the days 
That I myself have known — 
And mem'ry, too, recalls the facts 
In history's pages shown. 

But all that's past and gone before 
I see as in a dream — 
Far more intricately woven 
Than a meandering stream. 

But future life to me is dim; 
'Tis hid in cloudiness. 
No goal is seen, no guiding light. 
No concrete happiness. 

But close at hand — yet far away — 
An outline of a face 
Appears, and sadly smiles at me — 
A smile that's filled with grace. 

Like flick'ring amber candle light 
The saintly smile I see — 
Or does the mist betray my sight? 
Perhaps she laughs at me? 






' I 'HE English department is easily the most popular of the academic departments, with 
•*■ seventeen classes to its credit this semester, of which the picture representing Mr. F. 
W. Stoker's class is just a sample. 

The study of English is one of the most practical for all students, for it acquaints 
them with the good things that have been thought and done by men in all ages, and gives 
them, in addition to this, an opportunity to express their own thoughts in clear and force- 
ful language. "Literature and Living" is the title of one of the texts used in the classes, 
— a significant one, indeed, for it expresses the close relationship existing between the two, 
which is always foremost in the minds of the teachers and students in these classes. 

"A Rose" 

By Madeline Hummell 

■\yrOTHER EARTH; the warm spring air; 
■*■ ■*• The gentle rain; a rosebud fair; 
All for one end, these marvels rare. 
To fashion a rose for you to wear. 








X ilR. DANIEL E. HAGER, teacher of Latin, some time ago made the following 
•*-■*• statement, "Latin is the key to English and all the romantic tongues." This 
language is necessary for entrance to many college courses, especially law and medicine, 
and also is a great aid in the study of modern European languages, many of which are 
corruptions or dialects of ancient Latin. 

These facts probably explain the excellent attendance and dutiful application shown 
by the students. The classes of both Mr. Hager and Miss Huldah C. Bone, pictured 
together above, were filled to capacity at all sessions. 

One of the features of the Latin department this year was a Latin musical comedy: 
"Latin Grammar Speaks," given by the members of Miss Bone's class. The characters 
of the play were the parts of speech such as verbs, nouns, pronouns, adjectives, adverbs, 
prepositions, etc. The members of the class who did not participate in the play proper, 
furnished the musical accompaniment by singing Latin songs. The endeavor met with 
great success and as it is an entirely original idea. Miss Bone is to be congratulated. Her 
enthusiasm has gone far to develop interest and good will on the part of the class. 

Mr. Hager's fine knowledge of Latin and energetic method of teaching have turned 
out many students well versed in the elements of the tongue of the Caesars. 






Journalistic Writing 

ANY evening high school students are confronted with the question, "What courses 
shall I take to help me in whatever profession or vocation I may wish to follow?" 

No one can make a mistake in entering the journalism class in room 1 24, for it is 
one of the most interesting in the high school curriculum. 

This department is still in its infancy, for it was not organized until five years ago. 
In 1922, Mr. R. R. Smith organized this department with a class of ten. "The Eve- 
ning Star" was created by this group of students and is still the medium through which 
the members of the class gain practical experience. Many of those who have taken the 
course in the past are now actively engaged in advertising or publicity work, as well as 
in the news reporting field. Mr. Smith had the gratification of seeing this department 
grow until the time of his resignation from the evening school in January of this year. 
Miss Joanna Zander was appointed his successor and has organized an enthusiastic class 
with an enrollment of over thirty this semester. 

Journalism does much to develop a student into a well-rounded, clear-thinking indi- 
vidual. In the first place, it teaches him to think for himself, to be alert, observant, and 
original in the expression of his thoughts. He is taught what constitutes real news and 
how to collect and prepare it for the public press. He learns how the newspaper business 
is conducted and what are the duties of the various members of the newspaper staff. He 
is taught the art of rapid composition, the difference between news writing and editorial 
opinion. He is taught to search for facts, to seek for causes, and to foresee results. He 
is given a brief survey of every detail of the newspaper business, including headwriting 
and makeup, advertising, and the policies and ethics of the journalistic profession. 

Mention must also be made of this Evening School Annual, which has been pro- 
duced by the journalism class, under the supervision of Miss Zander. 







NE of the most fascinating classes in the Englewood Evening High School is the 
zoology class in room 1 04, which is conducted by Miss Rose G. Maddock. 

A very superior type of student is enrolled this year in the class, which consists of 
nine men and nine women. Forty per cent of the class are high school graduates and 
many are taking this course in preparation for entrance to Normal School or colleges. 
The course is the same as that taught in the day school, but because of the keen interest 
and the definite aim of the students, they are able to do all of their work in the class 
room. Miss Maddock proudly stated that none of these students fail in their examina- 

In the first semester, work was begun with insects, butterflies, dragon flies, bees, 
grasshoppers, and others. In connection with this study, the class determined which in- 
sects were harmful to farm products; what harm they do and what good they do. They 
discovered that some of our most beautiful insects, as the butterfly and the moth, are the 
most harmful, and that the lady-bird beetle is one of the most useful. Truly, "things are 
not always what they seem." 

Next, the study of the one-celled animal was taken up, and then, in the second se- 
mester, vertebrate animals received the attention of the class. The study of birds has 
enabled these amateur ornithologists to identify readily more than a half a hundred species 
of song and game birds. 

At the rear of the zoology room is the "zoo," where the live rabbits, guinea pigs, 
doves, etc., have their abode. These animals add much interesting material to the work 
of the class. 








Stenography and Typewriting 

"TOURING the past school year, the enrollment in the stenography department has 
■"-^ totaled 101 in the secretarial classes, 389 in the stenography classes, and 729 in 
typewriting. This large enrollment is due to the stupendous demands made by business 
for young men and women with commercial training. 

Courses offered in the Englewood Evening High School prepare the students to fill 
a definite place in the business wold, enabling them to associate themselves intimately, as 
helpers, with executives who actively direct business affairs. Eventually, it is expected, 
the persons so trained will attain higher and more important positions than those prepared 
for in the evening classes. 

The increasing popularity of the commercial classes indicates that this year's figures 
will be eclipsed in September.

!• ECORDS of enrollment during this semester show that the bookkeeping classes hold 
the honor of being one of the largest departments in the Englewood Evening High 
School, the total reaching two hundred, with classes in session in rooms 211, 120, 1 12, 
and 1 09. 

Bookkeeping opens before its students a large and invitmg field of opportunities for 
advancement, for every office, institution, bank, or other form of business, must procure 
trained men and women to record their business transactions. 

According to the teachers, a number of students have showed unusual aptitude for 
the work, among them being Mr. Julius Gremer of 1 09 and Mr. Arnold Larson of I 20. 

Certainly no account of the bookkeeping classes would be complete .without the 
mention of Miss Krablin (112), Mr. Cosgrove (109), Mr. Hornstein (120), and Mr. 
Galusha (21 1 ), who give unsparingly of their effort to make the subject such a fascinat- 
ing one.

Salesmanship and Business Management 

WE aim to teach future salesmen and sales managers the rudiments of the work with 
which he will come in daily contact," said Mr. Harry H. Hornstein, the instruc- 
tor of the class. The first semester of the course is devoted to teachmg the pupil to pre- 
sent his product intelligently to the prospective buyer with every expectation of making a 
sale. Demonstrations of actual sales are given by salesmen and members of the class. 

The second semester is devoted to sales management and business management. The 
student is coached in making "pep" talks to his salesmen. Each member of the class is 
required to make a series of four talks. A number of men actually employed as sales- 
men and managers are invited to address the class from time to time. The class has also 
demonstrated its ability by assisting in a ticket selling campaign for a benefit band con- 
cert and by "selling" the Englewood Evening High School to neighboring evening schools. 

Among other activities of the year have been a class banquet and the organization 
of an alumni club of the sales class. A number of the former members of the class have 
made outstanding successes, as, for instance, one man who has risen from a hundred 
dollar a month position to become secretary of a large firm. 



nnHE comptometer class of last September was the largest in the history of the Engle- 
■*■ wood Evening High School, the enrollment passing the hundred mark. It is interest- 
ing to note that seven of this number were young men. Mr. Charles B. Jackson stands 
at the helm of both classes, which meet in room 2 1 0. 

Comptometry, aside from being a very interesting subject, is especially attractive on 
account of the splendid salary, rapid advancement in business, and, of course, the short 
time in which mastery of the machine may be gained. Many of the members of the class 
are already operators who come to the evening school classes to correct their deficiencies. 

One member of the class, Miss Marie Folta, has set a remarkable record by solving 
over two hundred and fifty difficult and intricate problems inside of two hours.

Household oArts 


XY/ITH four blushing brides, two acknowledged engagements, and whispers of several 
"'^ others. Miss Lena Crum's cooking class, with an almost perfect attendance each 
evening, has found the acquiring of the culinary art a powerful stimulus to romance. 

Enthusiasm during the semester was highly contagious, for the girls came in groups 
of fours directly from their respective day-time occupations and prepared their own sup- 
pers before the regular class hour. 

Such delicacies as banana pie, fruit ices, and special holiday dishes, as well as the 
everyday staples, together with experience in preserving and canning during the fall season, 
are some of the achievements of the girls. Such a course as this one at Englewood Evening 
High School should be an incentive to any woman interested in keeping a better home. 


A DESIRE to wear better garments, made of better materials, and yet save money, 
**^ seems to be the compelling motive of the sewing classes in room 225 and 226. 

The large total enrollment of one hundred students, with an attendance of thirty- 
five in each class, proves the worth of the course. 

Such an intricate problem as fashioning an orchid evening gown, with wrap to match, 
out of materials costing twenty-five dollars, holds no terrors for them. The tailoring of 
a warm fur-trimmed winter coat was finished by one member of the class in time for Chi- 
cago's coldest weather. Numerous other pretty afternoon, business, and house dresses 
have also been completed. The girls have also received much valuable assistance in rip- 
ping, recutting, and refashioning new gowns from old gowns and materials. 

The minutes fly only too fast in these busy rooms and work is laid away with a 
lingering pat, indicative of a satisfaction that makes labor a pleasant pastime

of Miss Agnes Bauer, fly in the preparation of creations to suit the fancy of each indi- 

The girls have mastered the art of fashioning frames of wire and buckram and com- 
bining harmonizing shades into a perfect whole. 

While some of the members of the class may have ideas of commercializing their 
knowledge, most of the girls simply wish to make their own models for a mere fraction 
of the prices charged by the retail shops.

Auto Shop 

I WO classes were formed in automobile mechanics last September, under the instruc- 
tion of Mr. Charles P. Burnham and Mr. Maurice J. Archbold. Ninety pupils en- 
rolled, including six women. 

One-half of the time was devoted to classwork and the other half to shop work. 
The biggest problem was the overhauling of an automobile, including valve grinding, 
ignition, chassis repair, transmission and differential repair. 

Wood Shop 

I HIRTY-THREE pupils enrolled in the wood working class last September under 
the instruction of Mr. Neil M. Thomson. The course gave the pupils an opportunity 
to learn such trades as pattern making, cabinet making, and carpentering. 

No special work was undertaken as a class project, each pupil being allowed to 
follow his own bent. Among the many articles made during the term were armchairs, 
radio cabinets, and other household equipment. 






Mechanical Drawing Class 

JUST a few steps within the door of room 301 of the shop building, one sees a group 
' of energetic students bent over mechanical drawing tables. 

Included in this assemblage, there are bricklayers and plumbers, architects, journey- 
men of the latter trades, salesmen, and a host of other occupations with which mechanical 
drawing has but a slight connection. Every student of that class had a definite purpose 
in selecting this course. They realize that with the aid of this subject advancement in 
their chosen profession will be greatly expedited. 

The majority of pupils are interested in the reading of blue prints, for in this busi- 
ness world of ours, where blue prints are the pen and pencil of the business man, this 
knowledge is vitally essential. 

With the assistance of Mr. Glenn Worst and Mr. Edward Olsen, their teachers, 
the class works two hours a night and two or four nights a week as they may desire. 

Machine designing, architectural drawing, and sheet metal drafting are some of 
the branches in which the student may specialize.

Commercial Art 

/'COMMERCIAL ART, as an evening high school subject, had its beginning at Eng- 
^-' lewood in September 1 92 1 , under the direction of Mr. Philip E. Burness. At that 
time there was an enrollment of about fifteen students. In the six years of its existence, 
the class has steadily grown, year by year, until now it promises to be one of the school's 
leading classes. 

For the past few years, Mr. Burness has found it necessary to take an assistant 
teacher in order that the large number of students might be properly taken care of. After 
a few months it was necessary to let the assistant go, the class having dwindled down to 
a considerably smaller number. This year, however, the initial enrollment of ninety did 
not show any material decrease, and Mrs. Nellie T. Osgood has remained with the class 
throughout the year. 

Exceptional application and much talent have been displayed in the past year. The 
students show an unusual interest in the study, which is, of course, the best incentive for 
hard work in any endeavor. Particular emphasis is placed upon poster painting and 
display advertising, and this year some of the students have assisted in preparing the art 
work for the E. E. S. Annual. 

The success and the rapid progress of the class can be attributed in great measure 
to Mr. Burness and Mrs. Osgood, both of whom have all the qualifications necessary to 
develop Coles Phillipses and Norman Rockwells.

Their smiles often cheer me lots and lots. 

I like to be friends with other girls. 
And liken their lives to little pearls. 

I like to be friends with all the boys. 

They all have their woes, as well as their joys. 

I hke to be friends with their mothers and dads. 
They're just grown-up girls and grown-up lads.

Public Speaking 

"■pRIENDS, Romans, Countrymen ..." 

■*■ How familiar are the words of the immortal Mark Anthony to all of us, and how 
gratifying it is when we meet and hear a twentieth century Anthony! But perhaps the 
reader has not had that pleasure. If not, the reason is that he has never visited Miss 
Rita Corkell's public speaking class in room 320. 

The fifty-odd students that comprise the class are learning, under Miss Corkell's 
firm and patient tutoring, to substitute "Mr. Chairman, fellow students, honored guests 
. . . " for Anthony's somewhat passe salutation, and to express "Mary's Little 
Lamb" orally in such a manner that it might almost be mistaken for Washington's Fare- 
well Address. 

One of the chief purposes of the class is to overcome the shyness and self-conscious- 
ness that prevent modest Patrick Henry's from coming into their own. 

On several occasions different classes of the evening school have enjoyed oratorical 
programs given by the students of the class, in which a guest speaker was invited to 

The public speaking class promises to be "bigger and better" next semester, and 
undoubtedly an improved species of hawkers, auctioneers, politicians, orators, etc., will 
make their appearance in a few years. 





A Typical Rehearsal 

The entire class profiling by 

the drilling of each part 

of the play. 


THE Drama Class, meeting two evenings a week in room 220, under the direction of 
Mr. Ralph J. Helperin, is one of the outstanding activities of the Englewood Eve- 
ning School. 

A number of short plays are studied by the class during the semester, as well as 
the longer ones presented to the public from time to time. The plays given during this 
school year have been most favorably commented upon for their appropriateness for 
school production and for the remarkable finish of the performances.

The Orchestra 

UNDER the leadership and direction of Mr. Charles Espenshade, the Englewood 
Evening School orchestra has come forward in evening school activities. In the 
past year they have been requested to play for practically all of the assemblies and have 
regularly accommodated the Foreign Department by playing at their monthly dances in 
the Lewis-Champlin Building. 

Away back in the Community Room, 236, where their practicing won't disturb 
the rest of the school, the pupils gather two evenings a week for two hours, perhaps the 
most interesting hours of the day, for they evidently consider it interesting to work on a 
certain musical number until every instrument harmonizes. One little error on a violin, 
or the saxophone, or any of the other numerous instruments, is likely to set the entire 
class in discord. Many of the students come from distant points of the city to attend 
class; two come into Chicago from Blue Island, and seldom miss a night. Another 
feature of the class is that it is a sort of "melting pot," having among its members, a 
Spaniard, a Russian, and a Philippino. 

Many of the original enrollment of forty-five had never played on the instruments 
that they now possess, but by combining a little talent, a little patience, and a great deal 
of drill, they have mastered them, and are now able to present very creditable selections 
ranging from the classical to the light, breezy jazz for which they have become famous 
at the Foreign Department dances. 

The orchestra is a vital school activity, and consequently needs the support and co- 
operation of the school, and the students in return express their appreciation for the work 
that has made the Englewood Evening School orchestra. 





Pipe Organ 

THE organ department was begun in September of 1924, under the auspices of Miss 
Florence Roe. A large number of students enrolled in the class the first semester, 
and each semester since the enrollment has increased until now, in 1927, Miss Roe has 
a total list of fifty ambitious, music-loving pupils. 

Each student is given a private lesson of twenty minutes each week, and must ob- 
tain at least two hours a week outside practice. Miss Roe is delighted with the class of 
students, who range from amateur pianists to finished students of musical colleges, such 
as the Chicago Musical College, and the American Conservatory of Music. 

Englewood is fortunate in possessing an organ in its auditorium. The organ class 
furnishes much of the music at the various evening school entertainments. Miss Frances 
Wortell and Miss Doris Geflert, as well as others of the class, have fulfilled many re- 
quests for organ numbers, and Miss Roe herself has often entertained the students with 

The organ class offers a type of study that is very fascinating, as well as instructive, 
and the music-loving boy or girl will find here a course of study that will benefit him or 
her both in technique and expression.

Girls' Gymnasium 

A TTENTION ! Hands level with chest, elbows horizontal, left lunge!" 
**■ The twenty-odd girls that comprise the class present a pleasing spectacle to the eyes 
as their movements seem those of a single individual in their uniformity. 

Under the instructive guidance and criticism of Miss Anna Schmook, the class is 
fast learning to master dumb-bells, Indian clubs, wands, rings, ladders, and the various 
other apparatus available in the gymnasium. Marching and drills serve their purpose 
in straightening slumping shoulders, bringing heads up, and effecting the healthy glow in 
the cheeks that tells the world all's well inside. 

"All work and no play makes Jane a dull girl." So, when the military part of the 
exercises is over, sides are chosen and some seasonable game is played — these usually in- 
clude baseball, basketball, volleyball, and the numerous other varieties of indoor sports. 
A recent exhibition of the girl gymnasts' tactics gave a slight example of their rapid and 
admirable progress, and gave promise of even better accomplishments yet to come. 

Could some of our night school students realize how beneficial the gymnasium course 
is for those who labor under artificial lights in ill-ventilated offices, where the body is 
neglected eight hours a day, the enrollment in the classes would be much increased. The 
gymnasium is excellently equipped, capable of accommodating three times as large a 
class as the present one. 






Men's Gymnasium 

■p^O you realize the tremendous part that the "gym" plays in the lives of those people 
'-^ who work in "air-tight" offices and factories every day? Perhaps not, if you are 
not one of these aforementioned beings and do not know the conditions existing in these 
places. But if you are, there is one place in this vast institution of learning that would 
be beneficial to your physical well-being and that is the "gym." 

Messrs. Smidl and Marx, the directors of the boys' classes, gave an "open-house" 
invitation to all young men to visit the gymnasium at any time convenient to them last 
February, and quite a large group responded. In fact, the enrollment jumped from about 
fifty to one hundred eighteen and the class is now the largest gym class in city high 
schools in the evening. 

The activities in the class consist mostly of free play with an occasional drill sand- 
wiched in between basket and baseball games. During the past basketball season several 
K. of C, industrial, and independent teams played or practiced on the floor. 

Mr. Smidl declared that this playing among the boys and men increases and de- 
velops perfect team work, which is not only an advantage in sports but also in the game 
of life. 

To those who are inclined to calisthenics, the parallel bars and "horses" offer ex- 
cellent opportunity to develop lax muscles. 

Although ordinarily no credit is given for this class, the opportunity offered here is 
one of the finest in the school and a record attendance is expected next year.

The Evening Boosters 

WITH Walter Jack Cole as president, Roy Hudenburg, vice-president; Doris Bar- 
ber, secretary, and Arthur Albertson, treasurer, the booster association launched 
an Englebooster campaign that made history for the E. E. S. 

Within a comparatively short time after school opened 2,500 students became mem- 
bers of the Booster Association. 

On November 8, a banquet was held at the school cafeteria to commemorate the 
inauguaration of the Booster constitution. The second banquet sponsored by the Boosters 
was the Twinkle Banquet, held at the Pershing Palace, January 1 1 . 

William Higginbotham was unanimously elected president of the Boosters, Janu- 
ary 13, on which date Jack Cole's resignation went into effect. Shortly afterwards 
Harold Nelsen succeeded Roy Hudenburg as vice-president. 

Under the new regime a book exchange was opened in Room 207. It did big 
business for a short time, until the supply of books was exhausted. 

The week beginning February 7, was observed as Howdy Week. It was a week 
of informality, enabling the old and new students to become acquainted with each other. 
Many new friendships were made and old ones strengthened. 

Girls' Week followed shortly afterwards, April 1 to I 6. In the domestic science 
rooms exhibits were held for the purpose of showing the school and everyone interested 
in the school what the girls were doing. At an assembly, the girls showed their talent in 
other lines; namely, gymnastics, music, and drama. 

The Junior-College-for-Englewood proposition was brought up again this year at 
a Booster meeting. Ballots were sent to the students, who were almost unanimously in 
favor of the project.

Dances and Hikes 

T7IGHT successful Booster dances have been held during the year. Booster members 
'—' have been admitted without charge, upon presentation of their membership tickets. 
An arrangement for the sale of guest tickets at a nominal fee made it possible for Boosters 
to entertain their friends. The sale of novelties, such as flowers and dance programs, has 
lent variety to the dances. 

Englebooster hikes have been instrumental in creating many friendships among the 
hikers. During the scholastic year 1926-27 there have been twenty hikes with an aver- 
age attendance of seventy evening school students. These hikes were planned and led 
by hikemaster Charles Kellogg and his right-hand man, Steve Nutt. 

Some of the places visited were Argo, Willow Springs, Matteson, Glencoe, Chicago 
Heights, Glenview, Norwood Park, Franklin Park, Tinley Park, Homewood, Melrose 
Park, Hinsdale, Western Springs, Harvey, Des Plaines, Highwood, Northbrook, Glen 
Ellyn, Roselle, Oak Forest, Orland Park, Winnetka, Morton Grove, Midlothian, Pala- 
tine, and Chicago Ridge, besides the forest preserves in Cook County. 

The hike fans ended the year with a bus party to the sand dunes at Miller, Indiana, 
where dancing, bathing, boating, and canoeing were indulged in. 

The hikes, an institution sponsored by the Booster Association, are growing more 
popular each year as the fans make the hikes interesting by stopping occasionally to play 
football and baseball and enliven the hikes by singing to the accompaniment of Harry 
Newlander's banjo-uke.

The Englewood Evening Star 

VY/lTH six years of faithful service in its wake, the Englewood Evening Star has es- 
tablished for all time a place in the hearts of Englewood's evening students. In 
the form of a four-page, two-column newspaper, printed in the school's print shop. The 
Star made its initial appearance January 11, 1921, with Mr. Willis E. Tower, then 
principal of the school, as its faculty adviser. Later in the semester, the advisership was 
turned over to Miss Mildred Wheelock, who held this position until September, 1922, 
when it was turned over to Mr. R. R. Smith. 

Under the guidance of Mr. Smith, The Star increased in size to four four-column 
pages, or sixty-two column inches in all. A journalism class was also instituted under Mr. 
Smith's regime, which worked in conjunction with the staff. 

At the end of the 1926 semester, Mr. Smith resigned his post, and on January 3, 
1927, the destiny of The Star was turned over to Miss Joanna Zander, under whose 
careful supervision, a considerable improvement was immediately perceptible in the edi- 
torial makeup and style. Further improvements will be deferred until the fall semester, 
when the staff will endeavor to add many new features to its makeup and give the Engle- 
wood evening students a paper of which they can be more than proud. 

Adviser's Note: Especial credit should go at this time to the members of the 
staff, not only for their good work on The Star, but also on this volume. Although 
none of them were experienced in the journalistic field, they have been willing to work 
and to learn the things they did not know. Much might be said of the intelligence and 
enthusiasm with which Frederick C. Walters has filled the ofhice of managing editor, 
supervising the general makeup of the paper; the zeal with which John Radosevic and 
James Comerford have undertaken the gathering of news and directed the work of the 

Others to whom honorable mention should also be given are: Harold F. Nelsen, 
advertising manager; Mary McElliott, arts and literature, and the reporting staff, con- 
sisting of John Waisman, Jennie Dahlberg, Edward Edelstein, Daniel J. Kane, Eugene 
Murphy, Leonard MacNair, Valda Swarm. Aileen Moore, V. N. Burch, Walter Evan- 
off, Celia Healy, Zephire Marquie, William T. Earley. 













The School Cafeteria 

T70R the convenience of the students of the Englewood High School, a cafeteria is 
maintained in the basement of the main building, under the auspices of the Engle- 
wood Woman's Club, with Mrs. W. H. Little as the manager. 

Here, all kinds of good food, cooked in many different styles, can be procured at 
reasonable prices. Vegetables, meats, sauces, hot and cold drinks, pastries, and an as- 
sortment of other delicacies are set out so that each may select what he desires. The 
meat eater or the vegetarian will find a very palatable meal at a low cost, and one who 
delights in French or Danish pastry may satisfy his taste here. 

Mrs. Little states that an average of 2,100 to 2,200, with a maximum of 2,600 
people, are fed each day at noon, while approximately 1 00 eat their evening dinners in 
the school cafeteria. The large number of students who patronize the school cafeteria is 
ample proof that the food is well prepared and sold at the lowest possible cost.
